Collages Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Collages

Renate is raised by a wealthy father in Vienna who has a young mistress. She has a very creative mind and she ends up traveling around the world as an adult. Renate becomes a talented artist and has many interesting friends. One of her sexual adventures is with a boy who she later discovers is bisexual, and she leaves him because she cannot accept it. The book jumps around a lot to different settings and characters. One of the subplots involves a doctor who tries to track down a famous writer he admires. When he finds her, she enages him in a philosophical discussion about how exhausting it is to have strangers want so much from a woman of her talents.
